Huckabee Scolds Press for Gift-Registry Coverage

Gov. Mike Huckabee is fuming at journalists for reporting on online wedding registries established for his housewarming, the Democrat-Gazette reports. When he was asked why his wife of 32 years would register for wedding gifts, Huckabee lashed out at the editor of the Arkansas Times, who broke the story on his blog: "I think you let Max Brantley and a blog, a gossip tabloid, create a story for you, and that’s really sad." The incident compounds the already-bad blood between the governor's office and the Little Rock alt-weekly.
